Ethereal (Part 11) Goodbyes

by Moonlight Wolf

Age Group: Adult

The day had arrived
For the departure.
Killian, Seamus, Kathy and Trixie
Were ready to leave Karmia.

In Killian's mind they would travel
To many remote places,
Sharing the Holy Guide,
Showing people,
Inspiring them.
He fantasised about
Them listening in
An awed silence.

They would reach out to him
Thank him
And welcome the Holy Guide.
The Holy Guide would direct him
In saving Karmia
From the violence
That would enslave it.
Surely the Holy Guide
Would bring him back
Before the violence erupted.

In Seamus's mind they would travel
Trying to think of how
They could stop the violence from
Engulfing Karmia
For he was not entirely convinced
By Killian's argument
That the Holy Guide was
The only way.

Surely there was a cause
To the violence to come.
Perhaps it would be a riot
Perhaps it would be an invasion
But Seamus was willing
Just as much as Killian
Yet was not willing
To throw himself into
Any big commitments just yet.

In Kathy's mind they would travel
And see many beautiful people.
Although she had great love
For Lord Karmia
(He was a great man)
He had told her not
To become overly in love.
He was a terribly old man
And had a terrible
Condition of the heart.
(A condition called Kathy they said.)

Kathy knew that
The Old Lord's time was short
He had advised her
To do a little exploring.
(Which Kathy said that
He should do the exploring
Although not of the
Travelling kind.)

In Trixie's mind they would travel
And have much fun along the way.
Karmia had become such
A dull old place.
It was the same old houses
And the same old pub
And the same old trees
And the same old people.
Trixie longed for the new
She longed for something different.

Beyond the surrounding trees
Beyond the branches
And the same everyday
Places that she visited,
There was more
That she was itching to see.

The four of them stood
Eagerly waiting.

It was time to say goodbye.

Will smiled with some
Form of sarcasm on his face.
"Have a good time."He said
With a hint of boredom in his voice.

For deep down he was seething
For they were all going to leave.
What was he to do?
Ahead of him was a time
Of great boredom.
How he wished that he could go
But Miss Grissie the fiancee
Had strictly forbidden it.

Since the incident at the Haunt
She had never let him out
On his own.

She was rather afraid
That Kathy should snatch
Her sweet love away.
("Oh he's anything
But sweet, dear."
Kathy had told her.)

And so when they had
Said their goodbyes
To sarcastic old Will,
It was time to leave.

Or it was until Kathy
Announced that
They had not yet
Said goodbye to Faye.

Now Killian was reluctant
To do so but as they were friends
He permitted it.

They trotted over
To Faye's house
And knocked upon the door.

Faye answered
Looking tired and flustered.
She took a look at them all.

"Are you going away?" She asked.

Now this was all they needed
To know that Killian
Had not invited her.

"Why did you not invite Faye
As you invited everyone else?"
Kathy asked, looking rather hurt.

"Why didn't you let Faye know?"
Seamus asked, looking a bit confused.

"Come on Killian." Trixie said.
"Do you truly think Faye's that evil?"

Now Killian did not lie
On this matter.
He simply stated what
The Holy Guide had told him.

"Faye is not invited
For the Holy Guide says
She cannot be purified.
Only the worthy can
Go on this pilgrimage."
He said flatly.

There was a silence
And Faye looked rather hurt.
However from inside
There came a voice,
Faye's father calling her.

"Faye, come here." The harsh sound came.
"There are many jobs to be done."

She then simply shrugged and said.
"Don't mind it.
Even if I was invited
My father would forbid it."

With that she went inside
And they all looked on in sorrow
To leave Faye here with that beast.
They turned down to leave
To head out on their pilgrimage.

Author's Notes: Part 11. Killian seems to be such a killjoy for everyone doesn't he. Oh well, part 12 coming up soon. Hope you enjoyed part 11.
